Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana, one of the 20th century’s most popular works for chorus and orchestra, is a secular cantata that combines archaic poetry, simple, folk-like melodies, and primal rhythms to create images of the eternal springtime of the human soul.
In this highly regarded performance, conducted by the great choral master Robert Shaw, rhythm drives this intensely dramatic work. This best-selling title has been highly collectible on vinyl since its release in 1981.
This double-LP set also includes Paul Hindemith’s Symphonic Metamorphosis.
Reissued on vinyl for the first time in over 35 years, remastered and pressed on 180g vinyl by Optimal Media in Germany.
